An attacker configures a VLAN frame with two tags instead of just one. The first tag directs the frame to the authorized VLAN. After the frame enters the first VLAN, the switch appropriately removes the tag, then discovers the next tag, and sends the frame along to a protected VLAN, which the attacker is not authorized to access. What kind of attack is this?

Program Plan Intro

Virtual LAN

Virtual LAN is a logical sub group of the Local Area Network (LAN).

  • Creating a network within a network is called Virtual LAN.
  • The workstations in the network are segmented or grouped based on the requirement.
  • Virtual LAN is an application of the dedicated segment network and switch.
  • The switches and its software’s are used to create the virtual LAN.
  • The response time is higher in the virtual LAN with lower amount of collisions.

Explanation of Solution

VLAN hopping:

Hackers uses the VLANs tagging to implement an attack called VLAN hopping.

  • For the given case, the attacker configures two tags instead of one and when the first tags reaches the authorized VLAN, the frame enters the first VLAN and the switches in the VLAN removes the tag...
